Default California MSDS Lamentations


I am accustomed to cleaning my issue M-14 in a bath of P-D-680. It was a thorough & effective cleaning regimen.

I know Cal disallows this petro-chem for commercial cleaning uses, but I can't find a supplier in S.Cal.

The PRF-680A, environmentally friendly successor, is also not easily found. Nearest supplier is in Tacoma, WA.

Any advice?

I think you'll find there are a number of good solvents that are specifically targeted to firearms that do an excellent job. These are all available in California.

You're likely to get a few hundred opinions. My cleaning solvents of choice are.

1. Butches bore shine. (Powder + Copper + Plastics) http://www.midwayusa.com/viewproduct...tnumber=440524

2. Butches Gun oil. http://www.midwayusa.com/viewproduct...tnumber=141281

3. Faster copper removal using PatchOut (Strips flesh, can harm finishes). http://www.midwayusa.com/viewproduct...tnumber=112089

Both these cleaners should be used with Nylon brushes. Their strong affinity for copper will attack normal brushes and leave false color behind.
